Why do you install a ground rod at the generator? Do you also install ground rods at each operating position?
You may be better off without a ground connection. Let the ac float. Neither side is at earth ground like it is with ac mains from the power company.
Just use a gfi breaker. That will give more protection than any grounding you may do.
